Comedian David Letterman got unhinged with conspiracy theories on President Donald Trump in an interview with Vulture.
The former host of “Late Night with David Letterman” said he believes “the Russians groomed” President Trump for the presidency but that comedy will be what destroys him.
“I’m sure the Russians groomed Trump. They gave him tips: ‘You want to be an authoritarian dictator? Sure, that’s not a problem. We’ll tell you how to do it, for God’s sake,'” Letterman said before describing how comedy can take him out by usig the analogy of a 2007 New York yankees playoff game.
“A swarm of midges from Lake Erie caused Yankees reliever Joba Chamberlain to blow the game with a few wild pitches. baseball game in Cleveland, and a swarm of flies came on the field and the batters were doing this [mimes swatting at flies] while the pitcher was throwing 100 miles an hour.,” he said. “Well, that’s Alec Baldwin and Saturday Night Live. It’s distracting the batter. Eventually Trump’s going to take a fastball off the sternum and have to leave the game.”
He also criticized his successor, Jimmy Fallon, for his lighthearted interview with the president where he tussled his hair to prove it was his actual hair.
“I don’t want to criticize Jimmy Fallon, but I can only tell you what I would have done in that situation: I would have gone to work on Trump,” he said.
“I would have gone to work on Trump. But the thing about it is, you don’t have to concoct a complicated satirical premise to joke about Donald Trump,” he added.
He said if he were doing his show he’d have fun taking shots at the current administration, not only the president.
“And who’s this goon Steve Bannon… the Hunchback of Notre Dame. Bannon looks like a guy who goes to lunch, gets drunk and comes back to the office.” Letterman told Vulture.
“And poor Sean Spicer is a boob who just got out of a cab and now here he is,” he said.
He said Kellyanne Conway was his favorite target.
“This thing about her telling everyone, ‘Go buy Ivanka’s shoes; I’m going to go buy Ivanka’s shoes. Hell, I’ll buy you a pair of Ivanka’s shoes.’ Then they had to counsel her,” he said. “Boy, if this administration decides you need counseling — whoa.”
